    @Submaniac I don't get the joke or is it supposed to be one? Seriously, if you don't mind, care to elaborate? Because English is my 4th language.

    Thanks a lot.

    A company decided to run a public poll on the internet to name their brand new $300 million boat. Unfortunately for the company the most popular name is "Boatey Mc Boat face" The question is whether they will name the boat according to the poll.

    It's just an off-topic story for the lounge. (Non-vape related.) I thought the name "Boaty McBoatface" was hilarious.

    Ahhh... Cheers @Longtail1 that leads to another question - "boatey mc boat face" is there a meaning or meaningless but just silly to name a 300 million boat by it?

    Cheers mate.

    PS : I think I will Google urban dictionary about it first.

    Yeah, I guess I forgot that there are non-native English speakers on this forum who wouldn't quite understand. It's funny if you're a native English speaker.

    Explaining it kind of detracts from the funniness of it all, but I will give a little insight into it. Large vessels, are usually called "ships", like in a battleship, warship, cruise ship, etc. A "boat" is like a "row boat". When you forgot someone's name, a common English language joke is to call him "what's his face" or "what's his name". And "Mc" is a common part of a name for someone from Scotland, and is also like "McDonald's". So in the English language, I found it very funny. ;)

    @Submaniac @Longtail1 thanks for taking the time to explain it.
    :thank you:

    Guess I spent too much time playing snooker and majong during my 3 years in Portsmouth.

    Sadly--I think that, funny though it is, it probably says more about the intellectual ability of a large chunk of the UK Public--where this survey was based, I believe.
    And I am going back to live there???:depressed::sad::very sad::peep:




    ......too dramatic???

    This thread is almost as funny as the (stupid) name they've come up with for that ship!

    Don't forget "Deez Nuts", who is running for US President, placed in the top 10 for the states of Iowa, Minnesota, and North Carolina during a Public Policy Polling in August 2015. He also has the support of Warren G. and Ice T. Given the current candidates, I may forget the fact that he is actually ineligible and consider him anyway.
